Fresh out of Fordham Law School a mere 10 years ago, Howie Roseman showed up at Veterans Stadium ready for the first day of his Eagles internship. He felt as high as a first-round draft choice. "I come in, I'm wearing a shirt and tie - I'm in the National Football League," Roseman said. Roseman reported to Joe Banner, the Eagles' president, who had hired him to concentrate on salary cap issues. Right away, Roseman had a question for his new boss: "Where do I sit?" Banner told Roseman the truth.

Picture this: The Eagles are on the clock with the No. 4 overall pick and the first three prospects on their draft board already have been chosen. The best available player is graded appreciably lower than the first three, isn't a schematic fit, and the Arizona Cardinals are offering the No. 7 selection and a third-rounder to move up three spots. The Birds brain trust has prepared for this scenario, but someone has to make the final decision. Will it be Chip Kelly or Howie Roseman?

AS ANDY REID trudged toward his inevitable end as Eagles head coach last December, attention naturally pushed in the direction of Howie Roseman, the Eagles' cherub-faced general manager operating in only his first season without Joe Banner over his shoulder. Some, including his boss, Jeffrey Lurie, saw Roseman as a shrewd judge of talent, crediting him with the choices made in the 2012 draft, while discounting his culpability in previous drafts and transactions, including the great free-agent "Dream Team" debacle of 2011, which accelerated the Eagles' dive from playoff contender to their current status among NFL rebuilders.

Howie Roseman could have puffed out his chest or pointed fingers or reveled in an afternoon of vindication. Because as Eagles general manager, Roseman will eventually receive blame and criticism again. It's an occupational hazard. Yet on a day when Roseman was billed as influential in helping the Eagles land Chip Kelly as head coach, he refused to admit he felt vindicated when offered the forum. "I don't want to make this about me," Roseman said. "I think it's about our organization, our team, and giving our fans back the team they're used to. That would be vindication to me. " Roseman had been the target of criticism during the Eagles' coaching search, especially when they appeared to be exhausting their list of candidates.

Jon Gruden and Eagles general manager Howie Roseman have both been drawing questions - in different ways, says Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. Gruden has been contacted by four clubs about their head-coaching jobs - and has turned them all down, the "NFL Insider" reports , not naming names. Roseman, on the other hand, is being whispered about around the league as a hindrance to the Eagles landing a top-notch coach, La Canfora wrote this morning . As of 10 days ago, Gruden hadn't spoken with the Eagles, according to ESPN analyst and ex-Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski . Since then, Gruden has been widely endorsed for the Eagles job not only by Jaworski, but former Eagles coach Dick Vermeil , NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock , former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell , and Inquirer columnist Phil Sheridan . And Gruden would be interested in the right job. "He would have loved a shot at the Carolina job, the chance to work with [quarterback]

Remember the names Mike McCoy, Jay Gruden, and Ben McAdoo. All three assistant coaches are considered candidates for head coaching jobs this offseason, but more important, and in relation to the Eagles, all three are represented by agent Bob LaMonte. When Eagles general manager Howie Roseman hired LaMonte as his agent during the 2011 offseason it is unlikely he imagined it would come in handy two years later as he prepares to help owner Jeffrey Lurie find Andy Reid's replacement.

When Howie Roseman took over the business side of the Eagles' football operations this past offseason, he became one of 10 NFL general managers to handle both player evaluations and contract negotiations. The number is down to nine after Panthers GM Marty Hurney was fired in October. The remaining eight reflect a wide array of decision-makers. There are former players such as John Elway (Broncos) and Reggie McKenzie (Raiders). There are longtime scouts who worked their way up the chain of command such as Rod Graves (Cardinals)

Jeffrey Lurie said that he was holding Howie Roseman accountable for only the 2012 season when the Eagles owner explained Monday why he was retaining the general manager. "The mistakes that were made in the 2011 draft have little or nothing to do with Howie's evaluations," Lurie said. "I think it was important for me to own up to the mistakes that were made and understand where they were coming from, and it was awfully clear. So an effort was made to streamline the entire operation.

INDIANAPOLIS - Howie Roseman's job right now is to find the kinds of players new coach Chip Kelly needs, building at least a slightly different template than the one the Eagles used for 14 years under Andy Reid. Defining that template is a huge, important undertaking in Year 1 of a regime, and it has been Roseman's focus at the NFL Scouting Combine, as the Eagles' general manager sits every day with Kelly and the rest of the scouting and coaching operation, watching more than 300 prospects work out. "It's a learning process," Roseman said Sunday.

The Eagles' most important free-agent signing in the offseason was second-page news on the day he signed. Mark Sanchez's one-year contract with the Eagles had already been reported by the time the team officially announced it on March 28. His arrival as the backup quarterback to Nick Foles received a fair amount of attention considering Sanchez's history, but not long after his news conference later that morning it became an afterthought. DeSean Jackson was released less than an hour after Sanchez met with reporters and the conversation shifted from the former New York Jets quarterback and the then-unlikely proposition that he could supplant Foles to the discarding of a Pro Bowl wide receiver in the prime of his career.

There's a story about Danny Watkins and the Eagles, and it bears mentioning because the team's current top draft pick is struggling as much as the fireman did in his first NFL season. The Eagles knew from almost the first practice that Watkins didn't have what it took to perform in the pros, and certainly not at a level expected for a first-round offensive lineman. Before the Eagles had even donned pads in the lockout-delayed 2011 training camp, Andy Reid believed he had seen enough and confided to some in the organization that Watkins was a mental novice when it came to football.

THE SUBJECT was last spring's draft, but before I had a chance to ask Howie Roseman a single question, he said, "Let me remind you we are 7-3. " He was kidding, sort of, lightening the mood before fielding the inevitable questions about why his first-round linebacker, Marcus Smith, has been mostly a hood ornament this season, and why his third-round wide receiver, Josh Huff, has almost as many drops (four) as catches (six), and why his fourth- and fifth-round picks - defensive back Jaylen Watkins and defensive end Taylor Hart respectively - have yet to play a single defensive snap.

LAST SEASON, Earl Wolff made mistakes, but they tended to be aggressive mistakes, the kind coaches forgive in rookies. This season, Wolff never really emerged as the challenger to starting safety Nate Allen that the Eagles envisioned. Wolff's play was hesitant, and he still didn't show much of a grasp of the defense. After starting for Allen Nov. 2 in Houston, when Allen rested an ailing hamstring, Wolff was inactive against Carolina and Green Bay - a sure sign that his play against the Texans hadn't excited anyone.

When Eagles general manager Howie Roseman walked into Chip Kelly's office last March and informed him that Darren Sproles could be had for the price of a fifth-round draft pick, Kelly didn't have to think about it, didn't have to sleep on it, didn't have to scour through scouting reports or watch a bunch of film. It was, as they say, a no-brainer. He knew no one the Eagles could select in the fifth round of the May draft was as good as the 31-year-old Saints running back and return man; certainly, no one would be able to provide the immediate help to the Eagles' offense and special teams that Sproles could.

IF CHIP KELLY has soured on something, it might be the people he has to stand in front of and answer questions from several times a week. The Eagles' coach was asked yesterday about a report from earlier in the week on NJ.com that indicated the team might have been thinking of replacing quarterback Nick Foles with Mark Sanchez before Foles broke his collarbone at the end of the first quarter Sunday at Houston. Specifically, the report quoted a league source who said he thought some people in the organization, including general manager Howie Roseman, "kind of soured" on Foles as Foles struggled through the first half of the season.

Chip Kelly has heard all about a perceived Oregon bias when assembling the Eagles roster the last two seasons. Last week, he laughed at a new one: the Houston Texans pipeline to Philadelphia. "We just love Texans and Oregon guys," Kelly joked. "So run with it. " Seven former Texans are on the Eagles roster for the game Sunday in Houston: inside linebacker DeMeco Ryans, outside linebacker Connor Barwin, tight end James Casey, punter Donnie Jones, offensive lineman Andrew Gardner, wide receiver Jeff Maehl, and linebacker Bryan Braman.

Howie Roseman took a seat on the set of his radio show at Chickie's & Pete's in South Philadelphia on Monday afternoon with noticeable euphoria among fans in attendance and callers who wanted to chat with the Eagles' general manager. Roseman was hit with requests for autographs and photographs. He discussed some of the key acquisitions during the offseason. One caller praised his role in hiring Chip Kelly. Roseman, who is the only NFL general manager with a radio show, has sat in that chair during less friendly times.

Just before Bennie Logan lamented the Eagles' lack of killer instinct Sunday, before he conjured the image of a mixed-martial artist too forgiving and passive to endure the Octagon, general manager Howie Roseman sidled up to Logan's locker and jabbed his right hand toward him for a perky little fist pound. "All right, Ben," Roseman said as Logan, the team's 6-foot-2, 315-pound nose tackle, returned the gesture with more deliberation and less enthusiasm. Roseman kept moving around the room, and Logan continued speaking about a 34-28 Eagles victory over the St. Louis Rams that never should have been that close, about a defense that dominated the game's first three quarters, then damn-near disintegrated in the fourth.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - In a span of 21 months, since the firing of Andy Reid and the final ascension of Howie Roseman, the Eagles have constructed as complete a football team as has been seen in Philadelphia in a decade. Oh, it has its flaws. The defense surrenders yards and points like the French. Chip Kelly's Machine Gun offense continually sputters, especially in the early stages of games, even before the offensive-line collapsed. Still, overall, the team has gotten production from everywhere.
